Menu label: Add a descriptive label that will only be visible to users on small-screen devices. By default, 'Info About' will be shown.
Build list using: This drop-down menu asks how you want to build your list. You have the option to build it using:
- Advanced search: Do not choose Advanced Search unless you are familiar with writing queries. Build a list using Java API and REST API. Advanced search accepts a query description, and creates and runs an XPath query.
- An Advanced Search tab will automatically appear.
- If desired, the XPath query will filter the result set and extract facets.
- Query descriptions are made up from a set of predicates.
- For each predicate type, there is an evaluator component that handles that specific predicate for XPath, filtering and facet extraction.
- The REST API provides access to these features through HTTP with responses sent in JSON.
- Child pages: Populate the content of the list with the pages found in a segment of a website.
- A Child Pages tab will automatically appear. Click the magnifying glass icon to the right of the Parent Page field to select a folder from which to display pages in your list. (If you build your list with child pages you do not have the option of displaying them in the order of your choice.)
- Fixed list: Build a list with selected choices. Fixed list requires you to manually add any additional pages to the list.
- A Fixed List tab will automatically appear. Click the magnifying glass icons to select Web pages to be displayed.
- Use the Up and Down buttons to specify the order that the web pages will be displayed in the list. The minus (-) buttons allow you to delete web pages while the + button enables you to add Web pages.
- Another list: Populate your list using another previously created list. This is useful if you want to mirror items displayed on another page, while perhaps limiting the amount of items displayed.
- An Another List tab will automatically appear. Click the arrow at the right of the List Reference field to select another page from which to pull a list to imitate:
- Click on the field to pull up a browser window of all the pages in your UBCMS.
- Select the page containing the list you want to use.
- The browser will display all usable components on the right hand side of the browser. Choose the desired list and click OK.
- Search: Use a particular word or phrase to build a list. Any page that contains the searched-for term will be included in the list.
- Search query: Enter a predetermined unique keyword or phrase; e.g. "ubgreen-event" in our example.
This is optional, but with no keyword you will display ALL events in the calendar. More complex queries are possible -- see Advanced Use.
- Start in: Click the magnifying glass icon to select which page, and subsequent child pages, the search is confined to. Leave the field blank to search all pages in the UBCMS.
- Tags: Build a list using the tag words assigned to certain pages. (Read more about Tagging Your Shared Content.)
- A Tags tab will automatically appear. In the Tags field, type the tags you would like to use or select the tags from a drop-down menu by clicking on the downward arrow sign to the right of the field.
- In the Limit to path field, choose the scope of the list by selecting the page, and subsequent child pages, to which you wish to limit the list. Leave this field blank to populate the list using the content of your entire UBCMS. Web pages with tags matching your selections will then be displayed in your list.
- Be advised, items in lists built using tags are not sorted in the normal default order even if they all originate in one folder. If you want the items to appear in a specific order, specify that in the Order by field.
Order by: There are several ways in which you can order your list:
- postDate: Arrange by the date the list pages were created if using the News article template or with the Date Created component in any other template. Using postDate without one of these results in a randomized order.
- jcr:created: Order the list by the date of creation, with the earliest date of creation beginning the list.
- cq:lastModified: The list will be ordered by the date of modification. The page most recently edited will appear on top.
- cq:template: The order will be established according to its arrangement in the Page Tree, sorted by template type used on each page.
- jcr:title: The list is ordered alphabetically by title.
- random: There will be a random order to the list.
- You can also delete the default option and leave the field blank to sort the list by its arrangement in the Page Tree.
Reverse order: Check the box to select whether you would like to inverse the order selected in the Order by field.
Enable scheduling: Select to enable shared content Scheduling.
- Scheduling can be used to automatically change the content in a list over time.
- When scheduling is enabled, only pages whose “Featured on/off time” (as set in each page’s Page Properties Scheduling tab) will be shown in the list.
- Scheduled lists can be previewed for a given date and time by right-clicking the list and choosing “Schedule Preview”.
- Unlike Delayed Activation or Scheduled On/Off Time, Featured On/Off Time does not affect the page’s visibility elsewhere on the site; it is still visible in navigation or by direct link.
- Pages with “Featured on/off time” set must also be activated.
- Examples of uses for list scheduling:
- Hide an application link after a deadline has passed.
- Switch from one featured image to another in a slideshow each day (set the start time of one item to the end time of another).
